The NFL fined Packers linebacker Clay Matthews(notes) $5,000 for wearing yellow cleats with his nasty throwback uniform.

Steelers safety Troy Polamalu(notes) got docked twice that amount for borrowing a team doctorís cell phone on the sidelines Ė to assure his wife he was OK after suffering an apparent head injury.
And the Jousting Jims, Harbaugh and Schwartz? After a contentious postgame handshake and bumping incident involving the 49ersí and Lionsí charged-up coaches turned into a full-fledged spectacle at Ford Field two Sundays ago, the NFL took swift and decisive action.

Get this: The league reportedly sent out a memo to all 32 teams, reminding everyone to behave at gameís end.

Yep, tough love at its finest.

Failing to fine Harbaugh and Schwartz for their conspicuously contentious conduct was beyond weak. Not only did numerous players express this publicly, but as my colleague Jason Cole reported Tuesday, Browns president Mike Holmgren went so far as to put in a call to the league office to express his opinion that both coaches should have been dinged.

Considering that Holmgren is his teamís top football executive and a longtime NFL coach, thatís kind of embarrassing Ė though surely not as embarrassing as (gasp) uniform violations.

Seriously, what a douche bag. Come on. Owners need to step in here on all his "taking action" policy. Seriously, Polumalu calls his wife who might have suffered an injury to see if she;s ok and get gets fined $10 k? Clay Matthews?

At least Holmgren is calling this douch out. I hope the owners never renew this guys contract.
